Storyline

It's the last day of school. Christian (19) and his younger sister Sofie are on their way to a party together with their friends. They've got to finish studying for their finals, take the tests themselves, and then school's out for good. The party has come just at the right time, and is just what Christian needs; right up until the point his sister commits suicide in an upstairs bathroom. Exams and graduation completed, Sofie's unexplained suicide is still affecting everyone concerned, especially Christian, who is convinced that Sofie was trying to tell him something before she killed herself at the party. But life has to go on, and before they all have to split up and go their own way Christian and his friends decide to go on their traditional trip to Sweden to celebrate midsummer for one last time. Although the group's usual rituals in connection with the midsummer trip aren't the same without Sofie, everyone does their best to enjoy themselves. And when Christian's long held, yet ...

Surprisingly good Danish thriller
22 February 2003 | by general_bcSee all my reviews

If you expect a Hollywood-like `action & effect'-packed thriller, this is not the movie for you.

But it has an excellent storyline, good actors and actresses - even though most of these are debutants. Furthermore the effects are surprisingly well made, and I personally got quite a few shocks during this movie. See it. It's excellent!
